The Black Friday post-Thanksgiving sales rush saw Sony Pictures’ Spider-Man: Far From Home in its ninth week on disc return to No. 1 on the NPD VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart the week ended Nov. 30.
The superhero movie was originally released on disc Oct. 1 and hasn’t been the top title since its debut week.
No. 2 on the overall disc sales chart and No. 3 on the Blu-ray chart was Warner’s Aquaman, selling 85% as many copies as the top title in its 36th week on disc. Aquaman is the year’s second-best selling title, according to VideoScan.
No. 3 overall (No. 10 on the Blu-ray chart) was Warner’s Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, in its 17th week of availability.
The No. 4 overall seller and No. 2 Blu-ray was Lionsgate’s John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum.
Warner’s Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, in its 38th week, was No. 5 overall and No. 14 on the Blu-ray chart.
The No. 4 Blu-ray, and No. 13 overall in its 16th week, was the year’s top-selling title, Disney’s Avengers: Endgame.
The No. 4 Blu-ray was Warner’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters, which was No. 17 overall in its 14th week.
The week’s top newcomer, and the only new release to crack the top 50 as a result of deep-discount sales pushing older titles back up the charts, was Lionsgate’s Angel Has Fallen, which was No. 15 overall and No. 11 on the Blu-ray chart.
Angel Has Fallen is the third film in the “Fallen” trilogy featuring Gerard Butler as a U.S. Secret Service agent who fights off terrorists threats against the American presidency — following 2013’s Olympus Has Fallen and 2016’s London Has Fallen. The actioner earned $69 million at the domestic box office.
Blu-ray Disc formats accounted for 60% of first-week Angel Has Fallen sales, with 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray comprising 12% of its total sales.
Angel Has Fallen was the top title on the Media Play News rental chart for the week ended Dec. 1, pushing Paramount’s Dora and the Lost City of Gold to No. 2.
Universal’s Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw slid to No. 3, with Universal’s Good Boys at No. 4 and Disney’s The Lion King remake at No. 5.
